I've bose usb speakers, they work with ubuntu if they are connected to my laptop when I turn it on but if I plug them in when the machine is already on they arn't picked up.

I tried restarting pulse audio with

pulseaudio --kill && pulseaudio --start
but it doesn't work.

Also the sound can be a bit scratchy sometimes any ideas why?

Most USB speakers are iffy at best no matter the OS. Win7 on my desktop acts the same way. Even stopping and restarting drivers fails to work, but a reboot solves it. If they work from start up I would roll with that.
